I've noticed there's no such list posted; the Dji Go app always explains what each code means, so it's not as important to have it; anyway, here it is:

error 1
Flight log said:
Compass error!
Dji Go said:
Compass Error. Restart Required. Contact DJI Support if this persists.
Amateur diagnose/fix said:
1. Switch off your drone, and start it again.
If issue persists:
2. Check cable between your compass and main board. Unplug it on both sides. Make sure the sockets are in good shape, not broken and not loose. Plug the cable in, moving it a few times in-out by a millimetre just before the fully plugged position.
If issue persists:
3. Try replacing the cable of the whole compass. If this doesn't fix the issue - problem must be in the main board or flight controller firmware.
If issue persists:
4. Contact support.

error 7
Flight log said:
temper not ready
Dji Go said:
Battery Temperature Too Low. Warm battery to at least 15 degrees Celsius before flying.
error 8
Flight log said:
Compass calibration!
Dji Go said:
Compass Calibration Required
Amateur diagnose/fix said:
1. Recalibrate compass in your drone.
If issue persists:
2. Move to a different area, away from any devices, power lines and steel or steel-reinforced ground or buildings. Remove any keys, rings, belt, watch, cellphone and any other devices or jewellery you have. Recalibrate compass.
If issue persists:
3. Get a magnet. Hold it a few centimetres from the compass in the landing pad, doing small circular moves on each side of the drone. Be careful - do not get the magnet too close, because you could permanently magnetize the compass, making it unusable. If you're not sure, try doing it further first, and go closer only if calibration still fails.
If issue persists:
4. Try a different compass (borrow or buy one). If new compass does not fix the issue - then the problem might be with main board or with firmware.
If issue persists:
5. Use product support.
error 9
Flight log said:
Attitude error!
Dji Go said:
error 10
Flight log said:
novice mode without gps!
Dji Go said:
Beginner Mode active. Wait until the GPS signal is stable before takeoff.
Amateur diagnose/fix said:
Wait for GPS signal; if nothing changes for 2-3 minutes, change the place to more open terrain, higher ground, or further from densely populated buildings. You may also just disable the beginner mode and fly without GPS.

Dji Go said:

error 25
Flight log said:
esc error!
Dji Go said:
ESC status error. Please restart the aircraft. Contact DJI Support if the error persists.
Amateur diagnose/fix said:
1. Switch off your drone, rotate each motor a bit, and start it again.
If issue persists:
2. Restart the drone again, squeezing one of the drone arms a bit. If the drone starts motors after such action, then there is a connection problem somewhere on the main board - it is dangerous to fly.
3. Connect the drone to a PC via USB, go into "flight log" mode and download flight logs. Use any of the tools to decode text messages from the last log. Check details about the ESC problem within the log, and which of 4 ESCs is causing it (ESC0...ESC3).
4. Open the aircraft and inspect visually the parts making up the ESC which number was mentioned in log. You can find the ESC by checking motor markings on the board - ESC0..ESC3 are mapped to M1..M4.
5. If you have enough soldering skill, you may try melting the connections and letting them re-solidify. Remember to use the proper flux/rosin.
If issue persists:
5. Replace the whole main board (or ask support to do it).

That's all. I know it would be nice to have solutions linked for each issue, like in similar thread that exists for Phantom 1, but I don't have such knowledge.
