The flat round ones are ceramic disk capacitors, only liquid based electrolytic capacitors (The tubular ones) "blow" in the traditional sense, the ceramic ones usually end up in several parts if they do fail. They can certainly go bad, but it's far less common than with the electrolytic ones and usually more obvious. Also when you do replace them, remember the electrolytic ones have fixed polarities(Most caps besides can go in either way), or you'll end up with a few more blown caps (Much more violently this time).
