I've tried to compile (both pdfTeX and XeTeX) simple code:

☺
\bye

But in result I have a plain page, without anything. What's wrong?

    Have you loaded a font with the appropriate symbol present? – Joseph Wright Nov 30 '13 at 9:36

In XeTeX you need a font with this character:

\font\dejavusans="DejaVu Sans" at 10pt
{\dejavusans ☺}
\bye

Same for PDFTeX, but good luck with setting up fonts there.
