imx8mqevk doesn't have HDMI signal to some monitors

I'm working on an imx8mqevk. It works well, but there is no display when I connect it to some monitors, and the monitors say something like "HDMI no signal".

I tried an image "fsl-image-qt5-validation-imx-imx8mqevk" built for xwayland, and an image build for wayland. The results are same.

There are already some people talking about similar issues, such as:
But my issue doesn't look like related to bootargs. If I stop uboot and try something like "printenv", there is something displayed on "good" monitors, but it's still "no signal" on "bad" monitors. Also I tried adding "video=HDMI-A-1:1920x1080-32@60" in bootargs, and it didn't help.

Some raspberrypi users fixed their HDMI issues by configuring their build to force stronger HDMI signal. I couldn't find similar configurations for yocto.

I tried xrandr with my xwayland image. It finds XWAYLAND0 as the monitor, and can't get information of the real monitor even if there is a "good" one connected.

root@imx8mqevk:~# xrandr
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1920 x 1080, maximum 8192 x 8192
XWAYLAND0 connected 1920x1080+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 480mm x 270mm
1920x1080 59.96*+

Thank you for reading the question. Any advice is appreciated.
