reason why an electronic entity cannot be considered a jiva with the usual
faculties of iccha, GYAna, and kriya and having sanchita karma etc."

An interesting thought experiment.
1) The birth of such a 'jIva' would break the laws of karma.
How can an android jIva have sanchita karma, ie what would be the
receptacle for sanchita karma for an android jIva? If you say the sUkshma /
kAraNa sharIra, then that is created at the same time as the sthUla
sharIra. -------------Sada: Therefore Suukshma/karana shareera need not be created. Upanishads use the word - upavishati - it enters. An appropriate jiiva enters into the sthuulashareera if that is conducive to exhaust its vaasanaas. 
Question, of course, is what jiiva wants that type of shareera to exhaust its vaasanaas?
To the extent that I am familiar with programming, the emotions of the robot also are programmed - just as a computer can be programmed to play chess. The process of selection of the emotions are also pre-programmed, given the input information and multitude of choices (paths). Hence, just as the virus and bacteria and lower forms of the jiivas are pre-programmed to follow particular responses to the external stimulus, here the programmer(s) take the role of Iswara(s) to set the patterns of the responses and also selection process to respond to the external stimulus. The robots operate until the program(s) fails. They do not have a will to perform independently of the programmed paths.
