Infantino Street - S3-E22

Revealing mistake: When Iris is sitting in bed recording the message for Barry, she is holding her iPhone so that the start button is on the left side, but the "video record" button appears on the right. Additionally, her right hand covers the speaker area of the phone fully, including the front facing camera. It is impossible for Iris to be recording the video live and reveals that the video footage was recorded ahead of time. The illusion that the video is being recorded by Iris live is further ruined by the fact that the room lighting is turned off in the scene, but the recording is well lit. (00:02:55)

Back to Normal - S2-E19

Revealing mistake: The sequence at the start showing a "normal" day shows a coffee shop with the Flash supposedly running out with two coffee cups.When we see his day now without super speed, the shot of the coffee shop is just a continuation of the previous one, with the same guy walking through the door. In fact if you go back and look closely at the first shot, you can just see the edge of Barry, hidden behind another customer.

Attack on Central City - S3-E14

Factual error: Wells states that there are "precisely 90,000" possible 5-digit combinations for the keypad (to abort the nuclear code). However, there are actually 100,000 possible combinations (10^5).

The Race of His Life - S2-E23

Harrison Wells: You know what? In battle, choose your weapon wisely. Some people choose a gun. I choose a Philips head screwdriver.
Cisco: Oh, oh. I'm sorry. You're so particular.
Harrison Wells: Ramone, could you just please? Have you ever worked with a tool before?
Cisco: I'm working with one now.

Paradox - S3-E2

Question: When Flash created an alternate timeline in the previous episode (S3-E1) he started to forget things. He once again created another alternate timeline in this episode (S3-E2), why doesn't he start to forget things again?

Answer: Barry didn't create another alternate timeline, he just restored his original one, however Jay intercepts him when he (Barry) tries to fix it again. He explains that no matter what he does, the timeline will not be exactly the same. Small "time fractures" will still remain. Barry will not forget because he is in his original timeline.
