Question about 2002 Toyota Camry
I have a 2002 camry the car will not start I"ve had the stater checked and everything is fine however when I try to start the car all I get is a spinning noise from the starter
The pinion is not engaging the ring gear so the starter is simply running freely.

Either the starter gear is slipping in the nose of the starter, preventing it from engaging or the starter is loose or has a stripped gear or you have bad teeth on the flywheel.After inspecting the flywheel, I would try a junkyard starter first.

Agree, it sounds like the starter and it happens often on old Camry. When was the last time you had the starter replaced? The cartalk guys once suggested getting a mallet and bang on the starter and it will work. Eventually you will need a replacement. It is way cheaper to go to junkyard and get a used one (ask them to test before buy).

there should be small white nyon washers that keep the rockers from rubbing - alot of the time, these washers will break down,and "dissolve" and no one will ever know they were there.. if you go to the toyota dealer parts dept, they can pull a blown up view of the head and get the part number for those washers... install them as shown in the blown up diagram, or your chiltons/ haynes manual, and the noise will be gone!

sounds like you have a short. try pulling the dome fuse and see if it still does it if it goes off just find the wire that is going to ground and repair the wire
