Does OGR recognise the geometries in the CSV file?  You can determine
this by listing the features in the layer with ogrinfo and see if they
have properly formatted geometries associated with them.

If so, does OGR know the coordinate system?  Most likely not since this
is not read by the CSV driver.

What ogr2ogr commandline did you use?  Did you specify the source and
destination coordinate system?

It is *possible* to reproject from csv to csv with ogr2ogr.
