A problem with the fuel pressure regulator would not affect whether the injectors are being triggered. Besides; the fuel pressure regulator on this model almost never fails. But there is another part which typically causes this problem: It is called the camshaft position sensor. This sensor tells the computer which stroke in the combustion cycle a given cylinder is on; and that information is used to determine the triggering of the injectors. Cam position sensors are known to fail; and they cause the symptoms you described when they go out. So I would have that part replaced.
Rock Auto (www.rockauto.com) sells an OE quality Beck Arnley cam position sensor for this model under part #1800500 for $47.79 plus shipping. Here's a link to a photo of this part; http://www.rockauto.com/catalog/moreinfo.php?pk=2785371

Thank you. We will try this and see if this takes care of the problem.

I am curious to know whether anyone thought that 24,500 was too soon to be having brake, struts and seat mechanism problems. Could these problems be my fault?

Depends on how hard you drive the vehicle, what kind of roads you drive on and the speeds you drive, and how much you weigh/how often you're adjusting seat.
My daughter who has taken our 2007 LE as her own, is a very reasonable driver, on good roads. Rear pads needed replaced at 52K miles (mainly highway driving), front's are still fine when I recently checked them at 60K. No leaky struts, and since she is the single driver now, never adjusts the seat.
For daughter #2 on the other hand, I needed to replace all 4 brakepads at 45K on her vehicle, same roads. She also is a reasonable driver, but does definitely drive slightly harder.
Personally, I've replaced some of my other vehicles front pads at 25 and 30K.
There may have been life left on those pads of yours, did you look at them when they took them off and replaced them?

I have an '05 camry with 53000 mi and have had none of those repairs made.
Who told you to replace these items? If you were a cab driver in NYC then
I could understand. But not for pleasure driving even if only in the city.

My 2007 Camry had only 17,500 miles when I was informed by Toyota service that THE FRONT BRAKE ROTORS WERE WARPED. ALSO FOUND THE FRONT AND REAR BRAKE PADS WERE SUBJECT TO AN UPDATED BRAKE PAD TO REPAIR A BRAKE VIBRATION. REPLACED THE FRONT AND REAR BRAKE PADS. RESURFACED ALL 4 ROTORS. PAD KIT, DISC BRAK $132.37, PAD KIT DISK BRA $57.40,
TOTAL PARTS $189.77, TOTAL LABOR & PARTS $543.16
I've owned 5 other Toyotas and NEVER had to repair brakes and rotors
this soon. I'm very disappointed.

Where do you rotate tires? Very often rotors get warped when lug nuts over torqued with impact wrench. I prefer to do tire rotation myself and always release lug nuts to the specs if someone else does the rotation for me. MY BOTH TOYOTAS (CAMRY AND HIGHLANDER) DON'T HAVE WARPED ROTORS AND PADS/ROTORS ARE STILL ORIGINAL.

I had the same problem with my 07 Camry and dealer made complete repairs under warranty. The car was actually out of warranty by time but they fixed it anyway.
#5431 of 5628 2007 Camry problem with maintenace light
Jul 30, 2011 (7:34 pm)
Hi! mY 2007 Camry all of a sudden has the maintenance required light showing on my dash. I just had my oil changed last month. THe manual says that it is the oil that needs to be changed but can it be something else?

No, the odometer is what triggers the maintenance light. It sounds like you had the oil changed early, before the light came on; and the car subsequently reached the mileage which triggered the light. Just go to the place that changed your oil; and ask them to shut the light off.
