As someone else higher up said, recheck fluid level, that alone could cause it.

I do not know necessarily on this trans but if hydraulics like many others, reverse requires more pressure than other clutch packs, often reverse acting up alone is a sign of pressure problem (even pump) that then extends to other gears shortly. Seen it on many different models. That's why you evaluate the 'going into reverse' bump when bringing a new ATX of any brand back to life.
