After changing the Absolute Hour Angle to 2, I have saved the settings to the mount. Your question's a good one; I noticed last night that when I save the settings to the mount (with AHA at 2), and then immediately read the settings from the mount, the AHA is right back at zero--or maybe they're not getting to the mount at all.
I'll try and power cycle the mount and post a screen shot of the sky chart. It's probably evident from this string I'm not a computer whiz.
What is the HA and Dec reported by TheSkyX now?

I'll give those steps a try Daniel. Thanks!
The HA and Dec reported by TheSkyX (the settings in the TCS) are 0 for both. If there's a different report, I'm not sure where to find it.
This seemed like a good idea to me too. And I did try to do this first. The software indicates the sync correction is too large. (I'm not in the observatory now, so I cannot remember the exact language, but that was the gist of the error message).

I'll double check when it's dark, but I think your fix has worked. The Absolute Hour Angle has reset (and stayed) at 2. And without looking through the telescope it seems to have accurately slewed to the sun. Thanks to you and everyone who weighed in for the great customer and community support.
I just ran into the same problem with my Paramount ME, MKS3000 firmware version 1.1.45
Somehow my Hour angle got messed up and then I fixed it by restoring default mount settings. Its all working now :-)
I ran into this recently as well with an ME. I probably solved it incorrectly by Syncing a star.
