NeoTec NT-2701 Medium resolution arcade monitor making a clicking sound

This NeoTec monitor was completely dead all it was doing when turn on was making a click, click, click sound. The power supply was not turning on. I took the chassis out and the first thing I noticed was that cap C423 blow up and the next thing I noticed was the B+ adjustment was turned all the way up. I am thinking that is what blow the capacitor, so I turned the B+ all the way down. Maybe the flyback is the problem and blow the cap I'm not sure yet. I put it all back together turned it on and it is working now, I turn the screen color up and it has raster. I going to hook a game up to it and see if it stays working. I checked the B+ voltage at D106 and its at 103 volts the service manual say it is supposed to be 100V.
