Question about Canon EOS Rebel 2000 with 28-80 lens 35mm Film Camera
Thanks for the extra info, it's just a question of whether your problem is with the lens or the body.
Do you get the same problem with other lenses? If so the body is faulty and if not it's that one particular lens.
Aperture control is fully electronic, so start by using an eraser to clean the metal contacts on both the lens mount and the camera body; a clean pencil eraser is best as dirty ones are soiled by conductive graphite which can make things worse. Pen (ink) erasers must be avoided as they often have metal particles incorporated, or fine grit which is also terrible for your camera.
If this doesn't fix the problem then chuck whichever item is faulty away and replace it. Seriously. The EOS 300 (EOS Rebel 2000 in the USA) body was very cheaply designed and manufactured by Kodak on Canon's behalf and never designed to last. The same is true of all EOS 35mm triple number/Rebel models.The kit lens which you have was also very cheaply built for Canon but by a variety of factories. Yours will be anywhere between eight to eleven years old now so have done well, but no longer supported by Canon and spares are discontinued.
Even if you can get them, spares will be disproportionately expensive to buy and beyond any economic sense to have fitted, especially as you'll simply be waiting for the next inevitable age/wear related fault to occur.
Both items are unpopular with Canon collectors, and those who actually use Canon 35mm gear prefer the more solidly built upmarket examples as they cost only a little more. If you want another EOS 300 SLR kit then ask/look on your local FreeCycle groups (also Freegle in the UK only) as that model is quite literally worthless secondhand and my last couple were acquired that way. They do sell on auction websites, but only for between £5 and £25 for an exceptional example; even then the body is usually effectively free and it's whichever lenses and accessories that bump the price up.
If you want better quality, then look for any of the double digit EOS models, or if lucky, a single digit model (in the USA this means ignore the Rebels and go for the Elans or the EOS 3 & 5). These models are sought after by collectors and users but can still be picked up at low prices or even for free.
