problem with white balance check

When I turn on my K-5iis, which has images on the SD card, and I then press the WB on the 4-way controller, it does not pull up the last image taken. Instead, I get a black background. The WB controls show and are operable. But I can't use the controls on an actual image. What am I overlooking?

If you turn the camera off, it clears the buffer. You have to have a fresh shot in the buffer for it to show the real time WB changes.

Yup, these settings are just for future images that will be captured. The screen should allow you to capture a test image for the purpose of WB adjustment, however.
