My Sony TV is about 4 years old and while the sister-in-law- was watching a movie the screen halved. The whole picture can be seen but only on the bottom half of the screen, the top half is just black. There isn't a vertical hold adjustment knob that I can find so I need a bit of help here. Thanks.

Re: half a screen
The picture on your TV screen is driven from the center to the top and bottom of the screen by the vertical drive circuit. The fact that you can see the entire picture means you have a problem called foldover. This is caused by a failure in the vertical drive circuit where the vertical saw signal is altered by a component failure within the vertical drive circuit. You cannot solve this problem but any good repair shop should be able to correct the problem at a reasonable cost.

Sounds like possibly it could be connection related between any AV/Cable ports. Worst case would be the capacitors of the motherboard leaking. It's possible to fix anything. Just make sure you have the knowledge and the right equipment.
If the set is more than 10 years old the ceiling point for most sets has been reached, and prices have come down making it more attractive to buy new. To put money in an older set will be gambling with the odds of breakdown in other parts of the tv.
We have a Samsung LE32A457, whilst we were watching T.V tonight the top halve of the screen suddenly appeared with green lines halfway down the screen and that half of the picture was unwatchable, T.V is 2 years old. We have removed all scart leads but this did not help and the problem still exists, when shutting down a white horizontal line across the centre of the screen appears from this line upwards the picture is faulty. Any help or advice would be grateful.
