Oh brother

I don't think there is a reset procedure for resetting MFC 3240c cartridges.
Professional refill facilities use a code reset device on cartridges.
Users that want to refill their own cartridges often use a piece of cellotape or plastic bag to cover cartridge sensor. This can damage printers head if ink goes too low and printer keeps printing.
My suggestion: stay away from troubles and buy original cartridges.
Here is a link on howto:

the first thing you do is install the software before you connect the printer, the software will tell you when to connect the printer. after that just follow the instructions.

Wasted 4 hours trying to install Brother 3240c and failed!

That is because the telephone line connection you are trying to use is for faxing, not to connect it to the PC.

You need to use the USB connection / wire.

The issue you have posted does require little more information in order to isolate the issue to fix it. Information like have you installed the printer driver and connected the printer cable to the system in your system for the printer to communicate, are you getting any error messages when you are trying to scan or print, weather you have used the printer earlier and it was working fine till the recent past or it was just being used for sending faxes only and printing and scanning was not tried earlier, However let me provide you few steps that you cold try to fix the issue.
