Why is my Transmission rev high from 1st to 2nd gear?

(2003 Ford Explorer)
When I go to take off, the rpms go to the 3000 and If I take my foot off accelerator it'll kick into 2nd gear, the other gears change normal. And when the cars warmed up, the o/d off light comes on and message saying "check transmission!" Would that trigger my check engine light to come on? The code that came up is p0775. We changed transmission filter and fluid but that didn't make it better. Whats the next step that I can do without taking it to shop! Can't afford to take it to shop , any suggestions would help. Thank you

There are a few problems that could cause this issue. You said that you changed the filter and some of the fluid so we can rule that out. Inside the transmission is a valve body that has solenoids in it you would have to test them to see is there is a issue. The transmission in the explorers also have problems with the overdrive servo cracking i would also check that. If you need testing procedures go to alldatadiy.com its $26 for a year and you can use the same info shops use to repair cars. Good luck!!!
