Hi, Is the aperture in max or min ?
Remove the lens. Try pushing the stop down lever and look through the lens if the aperture changes.
Look at this pic if you wonder what stop down lever means.

What is the little red button on the lense on the end that screw to the camera that has a red L

That's the aperture lock lever. On many Nikon cameras, the lens needs to have the aperture ring turned to f/32 and locked in place. You then control the aperture from the camera body, the same way as on a lens without an aperture ring.
On older Nikon cameras, you unlock the aperture ring and control the aperture by turning the ring.

Sounds like the coupling pin on the body is missing, Try a diff auto focus on the body, If it still does it then I believe that\'s the problem, On the body next to the lens mount, About 7 o clock there should be a lever that couples with the lens when is is at f22 or larger

Some of the long tele's like that have some sort of locking mechanism on the side to prevent lens creep. Look for switches other than your aperature lock and auto focus/manual switch.

Turning aperature ring will not change the f stop. The lens has not been handled improperly & looks mint.

If the aperture is stuck wide open then it's usually caused by oil contamination to the aperture leaves; this is a very common problem on older lenses. If it's stuck at a small aperture then the cause will be a broken or dislodged internal linkage.

Either way, it's not a DIY fix and the lens needs to be professionally serviced.

Hope this has helped you and that you're able to rate my answer.

Quantaray 28-90 for Nikon N65 zoom ring locked up

There is no secret locking switch. If a little gentle jiggling doesn't free the zoom ring, then I can only suggest you take it in to a reputable camera shop for a Clean-Lubricate-Adjust (CLA).
