We have owned our 1999 Camry since new, and in our experience, the fast-flashing light is an intentional design feature to help alert you to when that specific light is near the end of its life. It is not necessarily a short, and the light should return to its normal flashing speed when the bulb is replaced. Of course, if this doesn't work, you likely have a larger problem.
This only happens with the turn signal indicators, but helps you isolate which light bulb needs replacement.
