    A little more information please. Does it say "PQ" on the lens, typically to the right of the aperture scale? What happens when you turn the aperture ring all the way to "A" and let it lock in place (it unlocks with the little red button)? Have you tried firing the shutter without a lens or film magazine in place? If you mount the lens, set it to f11, turn on the camera and press the stop-down button, what happens? Have you cleaned all the contacts on the body and lens?

    Sounds like it needs service. A few last things to check:
    1) regardless of how they look, I'd clean the contacts with contact cleaner or 91% isopropyl alcohol or similar.
    2) check the action of the spring loaded contact pins on the body side by gently touching them with a pencil point-they should move.
    3) check the housing around the contacts on the lens (its called the "contact bridge") for signs of cracks, etc.
    Good luck with it!
