I can't help you with the answer but I did rename your thread to give it a better description and to also keep people from thinking it is a duplicate of your other thread.

Internal damage or the linkage disconnected

That doesn't sound good. Hopefully it's the linkage problem Mike mentioned above and not something major.

I would not be driving it in high range until the problem is resolved. If a gear got stripped it would mean metal chunks in the transaxle oil. If I was you I would drain the oil out of the transaxle and check for metal chunks.

There are clips on the shifting shaft that holds the shifting yoke in place. You may have lost one of the clips off of that shaft. That will allow the shifting yoke to move in one direction, but just slide on the shaft in the other direction. Can't guarantee that's the problem, but doesn't sound like catastrophic gear failure from your description.
