Garage Door Won't Open

A car was parked too close to my garage door and when the door tried to open it hit the car. Now when I try to open the garage door it makes a ticking sound and will not open. Additionally, the chain on the motor does not move and I can easily lift the garage door up without the release latch being pulled. The gears inside are not blown out and the ticking seems like it may be coming from the circuit board or something other than the gears. HELP!!!
