This was one of the things I had to check on before agreeing to the fight.
"Tampering magic: Dobby also displayed a talent for tampering with objects. This was shown when he tampered with a bludger forcing it to chase Harry hoping that if it hurt him badly enough he'd be sent home. Naturally Dobby was not intending to kill Harry; in fact he was trying to save him from Lucius Malfoy's plan to open the Chamber of Secrets."
It says he can tamper with objects and magical objects. There is no evidence that Dobby can manipulate anything mechanical or electronic. In fact as a house elf he would be bewildered by technology. Hell, he would have no clue by looking at Cameron that she wasn't just some pretty girl shooting at unless she took some damage and he saw the metal underneath.
