So when I switch from auto picture to scene mode it does not switch it just stays in auto picture. I have tried turning the camera on off, removing the battery taking the lens off and then putting back on... wth!! Please help!!!

The answer and solution may be different depending on which Pentax model you are speaking about.

Example for the K200D:
Here the Auto Picture mode is Scene Mode where the camera is selecting which of the available Scene Modes it will use.

If you switch from Auto Picture to Scene Mode nothing seems to happen, except the Auto Picture smiley in the viewfinder will disappear. But if you now press the Fn button, you will see the selection of White Balance fine adjust was replaced by Scene Modes. If you select it, you'll have icons for the different Scene Modes on the back screen, and can select the appropriate one.

For other Pentax models handling may be different.
