Your radio is fine and reprogramming won't help you. Toledo is on a P25 simulcast system, which scanners have a hard time with.
The scanner working in the store and not in your apartment a very common complaint when trying to monitor these systems. The most important thing is location, location, location.
The best advice I can give is try moving the scanner around until you find that "sweet spot" in your apartment.
Edit: What type of antenna are you using and which part of Toledo are you in. The key to receiving this system is try to limit the number of towers the scanner can pick up. I know that sounds the opposite of what you would want but trust me.
