OK usually this is an internal mechanical failure specifically the reverse clutch/drum. I also see this if the fluid is changed and the wrong plug is removed. First we need to make sure the cable is not loose or binding causing reverse to not fully engage. It can also be low fluid level but since there is no dipstick this is not easily checked. Let me know.
