Do you have, or have access to a logic probe or an oscilloscope, or maybe a logic analyser?
If yes, then it should be possible to determine if the system is trying to write data to the AY chip.
If you have a multimeter, you can test the power supply pins of the AY chip.

Yeah, I do have a multimeter.
I was going to have a look over the board at the weekend and get the multimeter on it to see if I could spot anything, but the battery has gone in the multimeter.
*sigh* nothing is ever simple!
