Assuming Schwintek system:
First find the controller - it is likely under the bed...
See if there are any error lights flashing... Insure all connections are solid.

You should be able to measure 12v at the motor connections - and when the switch is depressed - 12v on either the RETract or EXTend pins... (Don't assume they are wired correctly - check both...)

If motor voltage - but no voltage on RET/EXT - be sure ignition is off... Otherwise jump 12v from any nearby light to the RET pin - see if it rolls in... Try the EXT pin if not (mine was backwards...)
(Doesn't draw any real current on the EXT/RET pins - just signals which way to move the slide...)

All else fails - disconnect the motors from the controller - Borrow a few friends - and PUSH from the outside... Bedroom slide should be doable... Larger ones are a bear... Once in - reconnect motors to controller to keep it in!

Good luck - let us know what you find...

Aria 3901 Bedroom Slide

Are you referring to the confusing issue where the arrow to bring the slide IN does not display on the multiplex panel? If yes, another Aria owner shared this tip with me recently and it works perfectly.

STEP 1:
Press the spot on the panel where the arrow should be. After doing so, the panel display a "locked" message along with a flashing notice about the lift bed.

STEP 2:
WAIT approximately 20-30 seconds and the message will go away and the arrow will appear.

Works every time. I hope this helps.

There is also a "master" over ride on the G6 panel, use a pencil to operate , clearly marked , however, all slide operate at the same time but will get you out of a pinch

Just a little info I learned with our bedroom slide:

Our has a bed lift that does not have limit switch on it. Apparently some of the older ones had this switch which would allow the slide to come once it was all the way in the up position.

Our bed is just up and down, so the system is set to a timer, once you push the in button, a lock icon comes on in place of the arrow , with a message at the bottom saying bed lift in motion. So basically, no matter the bed position, up, down or in between, the system powers the bed lift for enough time to lift it from fully down position to fully up, then the releases the slide motor operation to come in...

Hope this makes sense and helps.

The override button on the G6 panels will bring all slides in no matter the bed position so just beware if you use it.
