It doesn't really point to anything other than the fact that the logic board is expecting the motor to be turning and it is not. Error codes can be deceitful and point you away friom the real issue. Garage door logic boards are really not very sophisticated.
The logic board itself is not designed to withstand much of anything. They go bad fairly often with little provocation.
Other than that, you could test resistance in the various leaf switches, and also verify to be sure some safety device isn't damaged. You will need a VOM and know how to use it. If you don't know how to do that, you may as well order a logic board, as a service call by a technician is going to cost more than a logic board, all sensors and a motor, combined.
If your opener is similar to new ones, you might consider just buying a whole new unit for $150, and keep all the spare parts you won't need right away. You may need them eventually.

Take that surge protector thing out and plug the opener directly into the wall outlet. Does it work then?

Try just unplugging the unit for 30 minutes or so. That may fix it - did for me many moons ago.
MOO, Matt
