LED Samsung TV issue - dark stripe

It's a Samsung LED TV flat screen, I can look up the exact model if it helps. It's full HD, has 3D but it's not a Smart TV so not exactly the newest model on the market.
Now to the issue: Let's divide my screen through 5.The 2/5 part of my screen (starting above) is darker than the rest of the screen. It's a horizontal line. It's not completely dark, I can still see it clearly, but the difference in brightness is still noticable. As if I turned the brightness down for thus part of the screen.
It has nothing to do with my outputs. When I disconnect my HDMI sources, the stripe is still clearly visible on the TV's menu screen. I also tried the intergrated screen test feature and it still appears so it's a problem with the TV itself.
Repairing is pretty much pointless and I'll most likely have to invest in a new TV. But my question is, will it get worse over time? Because I still can use this TV. It's a little frustrating but it's not fatal damage. I can adjust the backlight brightness and other settings to make it less noticable. Maybe I'll end up buying a new TV eventually.
Anyone else had this issue? Any fixes?
Edit: It's really noticable with the color white. Instead of white, the part of the screen is gray.

Just did a simple white screen test on my PS4 browser. The dark zone is very noticable, even on some edges I didn't notice before. Why it broke so suddenly is beyond me. Turned it on without even touching the TV and there it was.
