It is not as doom and gloom as people think. I just sent my Hasselblad H3D-39 in to Hassleblad/Bron in New Jersey and they just replaced the IR filter. Seems like 3rd party support is still strong.

Note this is clearly stated in the repair & service discontinuation notice:

Quote
H2D-22, H2D-39, H3D-22, H3D-39
- Service is available for analogue repair of the H body.
- Service is limited to IR Filter and Linkboard replacements.
- HBI will provide limited technical support

That statement may be true for the USA but it could be different for other countries. The fact that Hasselblad have closed some of their support centres does not mean that authorised servicing has ceased, it may be supported by independents.
Classic V has provided authorised service for the V system since closure of the UK service department in November 2012 in the UK and I have put in a request for my authorised status to extend to the H cameras. In other countries this has already happened, www.B23.dk in Denmark for example.

Check the status in your own country on the relevant Hasselblad website.


Last week B23 cleaned my 528C back and replaced the IR filter. Great job, quick turn around (NL-DK-NL within two weeks, including shipping) and very reasonable price.
Just to let you know that service is no problem for using of these great older backs.
