THis is a belt driven engine, if the belt has failed you will have bent engine valves and the head will have to come off and be over hauled, pull the front engine covers off and check for a failed belt, it may not be broken it may have stripped teeth of it as well.

Not on Camry, Camry don't bent valves if belt is broken or skipped.

Depending on what engine, very early engines were ok, the later were interference engines.
