If you have dial-up for your internet access you cannot be online when a fax is coming through. The line has to be free to receive the fax.

My Brother MFC7340 Fax Machine will not send faxes it has a busy signal always and a busy signal when someone tries to fax me.

You need to reset the memory, since previously you have dialed some number, which is not able to connect. So restart the printer. Unplug the printer for 10 minutes and plug back the power to the printer.

Hope this helps.

I recently bought fax HP2140 and a while ago I saw fax ringing and info: receiving but nothing came thru. It is important to me that I receive faxes because I bought it for business purpose. My nanny threw...

The fact that the phone was ringing and the fax answered the call doesn't necessarily mean, that it was a fax transmission; someone might have called your number and tried to talk, but hung up hearing the fax beep.
You have to ask someone with a working fax machine to try and send you something, then you will be sure whether your fax works fine or not.
If this check will prove that it's indeed your machine that has some issue, then look for any error lights or messages on the display. If there was something wrong with paper, printing head, drive or whatever, you would certainly get some error message.

Phone line gets busy tone while recieving fax in DRPD mode

As I understand it, this is as it should be. You have two different numbers sharing the same physical line and only one can be active at any one time, so if you are using the phone and someone tries to fax, the fax line will be engaged and similarly, if you are sending a fax and someone tries to ring on your phone line, it will be engaged.
