Sounds like the blades are stuck wide open. Or perhaps the contacts are not working correctly. Try unmounting the lens and check to see if they are dirty or damaged.

And set the camera in "A" or "M", adjust the aperture to about F8.  Look into the lens, and press the depth of field preview button.  Do the blades close about half way?   Or if you don't have (or can't find) the preview button, set it to "M" and a half second or so (long enough to clearly see), and take a photo while looking down the lens.  You should see the blades close.
