In most cases, the default starting values of Mplus are sufficient. If there are convergence problems, Mplus automatically provides an input with starting values of the ending values on the incomplete estimation.

sorry! I'm not fully understand your meaning, do you mean Mplus don't need to set starting value by hand? if there is a convergence problem, the only reason is the model design, isn't it?
