Question about Olympus Photography
Lens won't retract and camera won't focus. Monitor is blurry. Was working one day, started doing this the next. The camera wasn't dropped, didn't get wet. We went to use it but the battery was completely dead and wouldn't recharge when we plugged it in. We replaced the battery with one from our other (identical) camera but when it came on, it wasn't working right. (The other camera is perfectly fine with the same battery.) It's about 8 months old and hasn't taken that many pictures. :)

It appears this problem is due a failing CCD device in many brand cameras. All the manufactures use the same source(s). I have not persued Casio as yet, but other companies are offering a recall to replace the CCD for free. I plan to use this approach with Casio. Search the web for "failing CCD in digital camera", it describes exactly what we are observing.

Most probably and or dirt has gotten into the lens mechanism, could also be a damaged or worn drive gear. Can you see score or scratches on the lens barrel? If the camera is still working then I would keep on using it. A repair would not be economical so a replacement is the only option.

Olympus did not make adapter for OM lenses to be used on Canon XL1 but, if you are looking for the lens adapter, Novoflex XL-OM Lens Mount Adapter Olympus Lens to Canon XL-1, is the lens adapter that suppose to work.
B & H has this adapter for sale.

I thimk your problem is that you have sand betwin the lens mechanism and that cause the immediately retract.you can try to apply air pressure near the lens but with care
