When we send a fax the receiving party only gets a black sheet. how do we fix this? we have tried changing the contrast and resolution and cleaning the scanner and nothing is helping.

Your document scanner has failed. Verify by making a copy with the machine. If it comes out black then your document scanner is dead. It will be cheaper to replace the fax machine rather than repair it. These types of machines have come down in price making it no longer feasable to make such a major repair.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

When I send a fax, the recipient gets all dark or black sheet. Thinking this was the recipients problem, I faxed again to a different fax number, same thing happened.

To fix the problem you have to check the scanner of your fax machine. It might not be functioning properly. Try to observe the fax machine while sending a document, look at the scanner section and see if the light of the scanner is turned on or lighted. If it's no longer lighted you have to replace it.

Receiving faxes alright, people receiving faxes from us are getting an all black page

Your document scanner has died. Meaning that the row of LED's that light up to scan the documents you are trying to fax are not lighting up. The result is a scanned document that is read as all black. Make a will get a black sheet because the same process is used to scan the document when making copies.
It might be time for a new fax machine as these machines have become so cheap to buy new that I doubt you could get this machine repaired for what you can just buy a new one for.

Can't fax or copy on brother mfc3240c machine

Sounds like you may have a small obstruction in the scanner feed. This would inhibit making copies and sending faxes. Lift this section up slightly to inspect for small pieces of paper or dust. Blowing it out with compressed air would also be a good idea.

Faxing is clean, streaks occur when copying

Open the document feeder cover. The scanner glass is dirty or you have a bad scanner block.

Will not make a copy

If it won't copy, it is unlikely to handle faxes either since those functions use the same scanner. If your received faxes are coming out blank, then it is a problem with the ink system; if you can get faxes printed but not copy a document, the scanner may be at fault.
Have someone send you a fax to check this function (printing) and then try sending one back to check the scanner.
If either one fails, then hyou know where the problem lays.
