Block Party rainbow; camera woes

Just at sunset during the latest block party, there was a mild rain shower, and this glorious rainbow appeared.  I managed to snap a shot, despite the fact that my camera was staring to malfunction.

This one came out OK, but many of my photos have started to be underexposed or just plain black  (despite being on the right settings, even in the automatic mode).  I need to either repair or replace the camera… Anybody know of a place nearby where I can get a Sony camera repaired? It’s not under warrantee anymore (it’s a year and a half old, and – silly me – I didn’t get an extended warrantee), so Sony will charge me a flat fee of $250 to repair it. Buying a brand new camera body of the same kind would cost $500.  I’m torn between repairing it – it’s a great camera! – and upgrading to a new model…
