4L60E diagnosis help please!

I have the 4L60E in my 03' Chevy TB EXT. While cruising up the mountain yesterday it would not shift out of 2nd or possibly 3rd gear. I got a high rev (5K) to maintain a 70 mph then lowered it 55 mph and the revs reduced to 4K. Checked fluid level which was well above the full line.

Question...this seems to be a common problem with this tranny but what is the usual fix?

Thanks

I also get no dash warning that anything is wrong? I drove it again today after leaving it in the garage overnight but nothing has changed.
