    Any camera repair person can service your shutter. It is very basic for a repair company.

    Just bear in mind, Prontor Werke discontinued manufacturing all Compur and Prontor shutters a couple of decades ago, Seiko even longer and Copal a couple of years ago.
    So there may not be parts available for your shutters. If the repair shop has to make parts it can get expensive.
    In that case it might be cheaper to replace the shutter, if possible.

    Didn't know that. Does this mean that effectively nobody produces large format shutters anymore?

    No one makes mechanical shutters for large format. But then Rodenstock, Schneider, Nikon and Fuji no longer make analog large format lenses today either.
    Rodenstock does make their eShutter for any large format analog or digital lens that fits a 0 Shutter.
