Character error 

Mattox speaks of how Murphy's armor will be able to withstand anything up to .50 caliber ammunition. This is a gross simplification since impact velocity, mass, jacketing and other factors apart from caliber will also greatly affect the effectiveness of a bullet.

In the scene where Murphy and Lewis attempt to trick Antoine Vallon into believing that they are buying weapons, he gets a phone call from the two corrupt cops to inform him of their true identity, he then orders his men to kill them both without any moral issues and the gunfight ensues. Yet in a scene a few minutes later, where the two corrupt cops meet with Vallon to discuss killing the two of them at the hospital, he is suddenly fearful of killing police officers, "Kill a cop, look over my shoulder the rest of my life."

Rick describes the M2 Battle Rifle as having a "30-round clip" when it is magazine fed. A "clip" is a device meant to hold loose rounds of ammunition together for insertion into a weapon or magazine. A "magazine" is a device meant for holding and feeding ammunition into a weapon.
Part way into the film the RoboCop costume is traded in for a black Power Ranger costume.

During his training, Mattox tells Murphy if he senses he needs a weapon or is threatened, the visor goes down and the system makes the weapons available, yet when faced with guns in the lab, you can still see his face throughout.

Continuity 

When RoboCop enters the lair of Antoine Vallon, his left hand weapon is the "modified Mk.II Battlerifle". A little later on, it's an H&K MP7. When he shoots Antoine Vallon, the Mk.II pops up again only to disappear in the next sequence.

Errors in geography 

Takes place in Detroit, Michigan but Toronto's CN Tower and Canadian flags are visible when RoboCop is on his motorcycle on the highway.
When RoboCop is riding down the freeway, we see an exit sign for Annacis Island. Annacis Island is located in Vancouver, British Columbia, but the film is set in Detroit, Michigan.

In one of Pat Novak's broadcast segments there is a background map of North America, with the Michigan boundary illuminated for emphasis. The entire Upper Peninsula is excluded from the highlighting.

Factual errors 

in the beginning scene in Tehran, the robot greets the locals in Arabic while people in Iran speak Persian.
Doctor Norton says that Murphy suffers "4th degree burns on 80% of his body". The bombing scene - and the images shown of Murphy afterwards - does not convey anywhere near that kind of damage. The imagery has likely been toned down for the PG-13 rating.

Miscellaneous 

When the phone video at the end is being played, you can hear the mechanism turning his neck through the glass.
When Alex is fighting Rick and the EM-208s in the test range and he activates "combat mode", his visor displays "Tactile Mode" at the top of the screen rather than "Tactical Mode".

Vallon shuts off the main power to his headquarters/warehouse, though the security monitors remain illuminated without proof or even mention of a gasoline generator or UPS battery backup.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

When Alex is searching the computer with his voice, he says "Antoine Vallon," but the results appear on his screen before he says the entire name. Auto-complete could account for this, though.
When Murphy propels his motorcycle into the glass wall of the Omnicorp lobby, the glass breaks before he makes impact. That is because the ED-209's have begun shooting at Murphy, as can be heard.

Revealing mistakes 

When Murphy realizes that his son David has an anxiety problem, he spins around with the bike. There are tire marks on the road from previous takes.

When Norton meets with Kline to warn her about Clara trying to contact David, the actress briefly stumbles as she turns away from the camera.

Spoilers

The goof item below may give away important plot points.

Revealing mistakes 

Several shots (like the one where Norton is reducing RoboCop's dopamine levels and asks him how he feels) show the character's rubber head cap not being properly placed around his head.
