Question about Brother MFC 240C All-In-One InkJet Printer
1) Plug a single line wired (not cordless) phone in to the exact same phone jack as the fax machine and dial one of the fax numbers you are trying to dial out to using the exact same digits. Does the call complete Y/N? do you hear a fax tone Y/N?
>>>>If either answer is "No" you have an invalid phone number. If both answers are "Yes" proceed to step 2.
2) When you off hook do you hear a "stutter" dial tone? Y/N?
>>>>>"Yes" This is your phone company telling you that you have unlistened voicemail messages in your mailbox. Dial in to your voice mail and clear your messages. "No" go to step 3.
3) 2 part question: Do you have call waiting and is your fax machine trying to disable call waiting when dialing out?
>>>>>In many areas *70 (star-seven-zero) will disable call waiting for a single phone call. If you try to disable call waiting when call waiting is not on the line, the call will not complete. This may come in to play in a speed dial situation.
+++Other things to consider+++
*Is outgoing long distance blocked on the line?
*Is outgoing regional intralata (same area code) long distance blocked?
*Is local calling blocked?
*Is a speed dial misprogrammed? Forgot to dial "1" Dialed "1" in error?
*Is there a wiring problem? >>>Try moving fax machine to a different phone jack.
There may be no magic answer for your problem, I hope one of these suggestions helps.

if its ooficejet,then u shud use 2 prong cable,wire that is coming out from wall jack shoud be directly connected to the line port of the printer and if u are using a tam that shoud be connected to the ext port of the printer,and if this doesn't work,then 1 thing you can do,remove the tam from the phone,and in case if you cannot remove,turn off the tam and then try to send,you wud be able to,and use only two prong cable,and i beleive you are not using voip connection....

SOURCE: Can't send or receive faxes ADSL
If you want to use the FAX - use the dedicated line to the FAX Machine..
Hi check the following steps
Problems with sending and receiving FAX
Check the TELEPHONE LINE
Make sure that you have plugged the phone cord directly and securely into the wall jack and into the back port of the fax product. The fax port on your product is marked "Line," "To Wall Jack," or with a wall jack symbol.
Make sure the Line Interface Unit (box that the phone cord plugs into) is fully seated into the back of the fax product.
Remove the SPLITTER
Remove any other devices from the line such as splitters, credit card machines, or telephone answering machines.
Can try sending the Fax on Another Line
CHECK WITH DIFFERENT CABLE
Try using a different telephone cord.

Your scanner array is bad. This is a light "bar" that lights up to scan your originals before they are sent out. You can test for this by making a copy with your machine. The same scanning function is used to make a copy as it is when you scan to send a fax. If you make a copy and it comes out black then your scanner is bad. This is especially true as when you say that the problem goes away for a short time after turning the machine off. This allows the circuit to cool and the solder connections to shrink and make contact. As the board heats up the metal contacts expand and "open up", causing the scanner to fail.
Not a cheap fix unfortunately.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.
