Are you using frame buffer or you have graphical acceleration enabled on 
this board?

Recently I had a blank screen issue on Radxa Rock while I was using 
Weston and wayland with frame buffer support and I solved by settings 
the resolution with fbset before launching Weston.

Actually Tizen:Common 3.0 is available with Wayland or with X11. 
Although Wayland is preferred. Have a look at the available images here:

The Tizen:Common with Wayland comes with Weston (a reference 
implementation of a Wayland compositor) which is started by systemd unit 
called display-manager-run.service. This services executes the following 
command to start Weston:

/usr/bin/weston --backend=fbdev-backend.so -i0 --log=%h/weston.log
