On the W-2 input screen, you have to make sure that you've checked "Other" rather than "US Address" when you're entering your Canadian employer's address.  Then you also need to make sure that "Foreign Address" is checked rather than "APO, FPO, or DPO".  Once you check "Foreign Address" the address boxes change to accommodate the foreign style.  If these boxes aren't checked properly, then TurboTax will be thinking there should be a state & zip code when there isn't one, and you'll get an error.

The zip code has letters as well as numbers, I’ve updated the country on the w2 repeatedly & it never updates completely

Have you tried deleting the W-2 completely and then re-enter the W-2 manually?
