Although I have a Brother 420CN that I had similar problems with, the instructions for checking the lines remain the same I'm sure. Double check the telephone outlet by plugging in a separate phone connection. If there is a dial tone, you know the line is good. Next double check that you have the Ext Line cords on the fax machine input correctly.
Make sure your fax cord runs directly into the telephone jack on the wall - do not plug fax cord into a 2 way or 3 way adapter to the phone jack. You can however use a line filter (cord with jack plug that's usually provided by the manufacturer - check your phone box if you still have it) and plug the fax cord into that.
Eventually I did manage to get this to work for me - after numerous tech support calls to my phone provider!

Make sure you have a dial tone by plugging a different phone into the jack. then make sure you have it plugged into the jack on the fax that says line.

How do i get dial tone on fax machine

first, as a tech, i would make sure your phone jack works, then also make sure the line is plugged into the "line" jack on rear of fax. if those two steps are verified beyond a doubt, press your "hook" button and listen for dail tone. if none, pick up handset and listen. if you get tone on handset, then your speaker is disconnected. if you don't get a tone either way, then chances are you have a bad "NCU" board.

good luck,

Brother MFC-240c Dails out but then just says the line is busy , we know its not and not receiving faxes either no error no given

Just make sure that the telephone cord is inserted into the "Line" of the fax machine. Otherwise, it is not uncommon for the wrong pair of wires to be assigned to your number by the telephone company.
