Check the wiring harness in the left Trunk Hinge area. This is an area known to be a problem on some Camry's. The wires break then short causing a blown fuse.

If the wires and fuse check out good, you may also have a bad brake pedal switch. Check to make sure that when you hit the brake pedal, all of the brake lights are illuminating. I believe if the center brake light is burned out in the back window, that will also stop the car from going into gear. Here is a short video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B7k6tNGLO0w If you still cannot move out of park, you can remove the tiny panel on the left side of your shifter and depress the shift lock release button. https://www.youtube.com/watch? v=FhXeGKypsQ0
