The users manual for these pool heaters has a very detailed troubleshooting guide. I would start there. A pdf version is below.

My heater displays R8 when I turn it on then it will not start

That is a Circuit Board Logic confirmation code, informing of what 'Revision' it is. Not an Error/Fault code.
we need more info if possible, what is it doing, what have you done, Are getting a fault code? Is the 'service' lite on? Is gas valve on? Is gas supply valve open? Etc.

I have two error codes: 180/R9 anlong with 128/R8 HELP!

Error pertains to stack flue sensor setting.
There are two modes for low level programming and default is a (0) Zero but for outdoor spas this must be reset to a one ( 1 )
Just hold the off button down for 30 seconds let up, press down again, use arrow buttons on key pad to set from 0 to off with it and see for yourself...I don't now why Sta-rite buries this information and makes us guess.

Again, on mine, this all pertains to the Stack Flue Sensor setting.... you can look at your heater and see what they look like...outside toward bottom the SF must be a 1 and not Zero or you get the quick flash 128-R8 notice...also, the Stack flue senor is finicky and connections must be good...use steal wool to re-seat but be careful as connector break off easily thus requiring a new stack flue sensor...
I accidentally discovered this when I turned the board upside down and spotted the LED red light on indicating a fault with the SFS**

I wish some one would tell us how to by-pass the stack flue sensor to make the heater work.
Good luck...hopefully the power button is close by and your board is working....
