Something weird is going on with the volume on my fp-90. When I first turn on the piano and play it seems like it's quite hard to get a lot of sound out of the piano. I can hammer the keys but it will only go so loud. However, if I then play one of the prerecorded songs, it comes out at a ridiculous volume, and after that, when I try playing myself, I'm able to reach those same volumes. I can see that playing the prerecorded song is messing with some state, because the bpm setting at the bottom of the display gets changed to whatever the bpm of the song is, but how would this affect the volume?

tl;dr somehow playing a prerecorded song is changing the volume setting on the piano. Any ideas? I tried a factory reset and the issue persists. The piano is on firmware 1.05.

I assume your Part volume sliders (Upper and Lower) are at Max.

This

If the part upper slider is low, it doesn’t matter how loud the volume slider is.

The volumes are actually stored digitally, so when you play the internal song, it uses a different value for the part upper volume.

Move the part upper slider just a bit and the piano reads it’s position and adjusts the volume.

You will find this also if you use registrations as they also save the volume slider positions.

Moving the upper volume slider to max fixed things. Would not have thought of this in a million years.

Interesting how the slider interacts with the digital value. Playing the internal song leaving the slider at medium, and then jacking up the slider to max doesn't seem to do anything.

Thanks for the fix & explanation.
