I didn't know the answer to your question however I did find a thread on the Pentaxforums.com website that may help with your problem.

Here is the direct link to the topic. I find that for Pentax specific questions, this site ususually has it.

Ok franky i think ive found your answer. It is instructions for the K10D but It should be the same menu system. If im understanding you correctly you want to use a white or gray card to adjust your wb manually depending on the environment you are in right? Here are the instructions on how to do so....
