When I invert my display (xrandr -o inverted), the display goes black. This is in contrast to orienting the display to left (xrandr -o left), to right (xrandr -o right) or to normal (xrandr -o normal).

When I try to orient the display to normal from this black/inverted state (xrandr -o normal) directly, the display remains black. When I change to another virtual console (Ctrl Alt F2) and then change back (Ctrl Alt F7), the display appears again (inverted), but does not orient to normal on executing the command xrandr -o normal.

What's going on and how could this obstinate blackout behaviour be addressed?

I'm running Ubuntu 15.04 with Unity.
