Quoted from johnwartjr:
Is the coin door memory protect switch by chance stuck closed? Can you test it with a meter and confirm it is working correctly?
This is what I'm thinking as well. Something isn't allowing writes to the RAM.
Ensure J114 is connected properly and no evidence of battery leakage damage in the area. Remove J114 from the board and try again.
