Sometimes the simplest diagnosis is the best, although I'm sure you've considered this: could it be that the selector in the D position is stuck to the "-" (minus) side? Have you tried nudging the stick to the right when its in the D position to see if it upshifts?

When you say:
you can move into park reverse etc etc but it still stays stuck in 1st gear.........
do you mean that even when the selector is in park or reverse, the transmission is still in 1st? or does it actually park/reverse, and when you put it into drive it's stuck in 1st?
