Question about 1994 Toyota Camry
Copper heavy duty contacts either side of starter motor armature within the motor body have worn to nothing and so no contact. No contact means no electricity to the starter motor coils means no turn over. You can buy a kit to replace the copper contacts for less than $10. It will take about 45 minutes to remove, clean, strip, replace and refit the starter motor.

The starter solenoid will click when the battery is to low to start the car. Have the battery charged and load tested to make sure it's good. Check the charging system to make sure the alternator is good. Check the wire connections at the starter. If either is loose, the starter won't work.
With a full, known good battery, turn on the headlamps and try starting the engine. If the headlamps stay bright, the contacts in the solenoid are bad. If the headlamps dim greatly or go out, the starter is shorted out and must be replaced.
Also try turning the crankshaft manually with a breaker bar and socket if you suspect that the engine may have seized up.
