These are jobs I wouldn't advise a person not qualified to do.Sorry to say that.The first thing you have to do before you remove the timing belt is to study and see if you can identify the marks.Its been a long time I worked on a Camry but I still remember there is a mark on the cam gear that should be at 12 o'clock then number one is firing.The crank sprocket also should have a mark or you can use the one on the timing cover aliening with the crank pulley mark.
If you fitted the belt in a wrong way,the valves might hit the piston and cause damage.I would suggest you remove the belt,spark plug and tappet cover.Put a screw driver in the spark plug hole and ask someone to turn the engine slowly and carefully until the piston is half way.If there is restriction,turn in a different direction.Then turn the cam gear until number 4 valves rock.If they do,look carefully on the cam gear and you will be able to see a dot that should line with a certain mark behind the gear if am not mistaken. Then tern the engine observing the screw driver movement.Only stop when it stops going up and thats your tdc.Again,search for mark on the block that should line with the mark on your sprocket. Also make sure that the rotor on the distributor is pointing at number one. This is just to help you find your way.
