Hi, I'm Pete. Welcome to JustAnswer! I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply ASAP.

Is the on-screen menu also affected by the problem?

If so, the display cables may be slightly loose, and are expanding in their sockets and making a better connection once the TV warms up.

You could try fitting a small piece of tape to the non-contact of the display cables to help make them thicker and therefore a better connection will result.
