Consider your self lucky that the trans lasted that long. Time for a rebuild.

Most likely broke the reverse band inside the tranny but there is a chance it could be a control solenoid, but it is just a chance.

Any codes? Up arrow light? Do the reverse lights still light up when shifted into reverse? Your PNP switch could be on its way out, but that would be on the easy side of repairs. How's the fluid look, and when was it last changed?
