Be sure you have all three buttons actually depressed, and hold them in until it's powered up.

My IC-2820 and Kenwood TM-V7 had similar procedures. But if you moved your finger or let off of the button at all, it required another try.

The X-band might require a diode modification to be enabled.
When the ic-2820 came out I did a lot of these modifications.
Check with your local Icom dealer if this function is enabled.

Try This:

To Activate Cross-Band Mode
Before you activate cross-band, set the frequencies you will need. Frequencies can be set in VFO or using Memory Channels, or also using VFO and a Memory Channel.
Note: Once this procedure has been completed, the cross-band feature will now appear in the menu unless a full reset is performed.
1. Press and hold both MAIN keys, MONI, and then press power.
2. Press MENU.
3. Rotate a tuning knob and select EXMENU.
4. Press MW. Rotate a tuning knob and select OTHERS.
5. Press MW. Rotate a tuning knob and select RPT M.
6. Press MW. Rotate a tuning knob and select START.
7. Press MW. Rotate a tuning knob and select YES.
8. Press MW. The display will show both bands with rPt listed under the frequencies. The cross-band feature is now activated and you may operate in cross-band mode.

To Exit Cross-Band Repeat Mode
1. Press Menu.
2. Rotate a tuning knob and select YES.
3. Press MW. To return to cross-band repeat mode, perform steps 2- 8 as above.
