Question about 1995 Toyota Camry
You have worn contacts on the starter solenoid. This is a rather common problem. Attempting to start it 2-3 times moves the contact slightly, and then it starts, by making good contact. You have 2 options: 1) Replace the starter and 2) remove the starter, and have the contacts replaced by a starter rebuilding service. The 2nd option would be the cheapest rout, as opposed to a replacement starter. Hope this helps you out.

I have a 96 camry that did that for a number of years. I had the starter replaced about 6 years ago and the problem went away only to came back 3 years later. I have been living with that until the starter finally went dead recently. Changed for another one and it is working fantastic. Keep finger crossed that it will last this time.
I think yours is very likely a starter problem and you should get a used one for much less if it is still in good condition.
