Unhappy Transmission problems with engine code

Hello fellow Ram fans,

I had an engine code pop up this week, and went to o'reilly to have it scanned. The code is PO783 "3-4 shift". Aparently, there is a solenoid/band problem, accoding to the guy that scanned it. I haven't noticed much other than it takes a few seconds to upshift if I'm not hammering the gas pedal. It is a '97 5.9 gas w/ auto trans.

How serious is this? Will it eventually quit shifting, damage it further if not fixed, etc? Should I begin scouring the junk yard for a replacement tranny? Thank you all for your help.
