Proximity Sensor Problem

I have an Picaxe-18x and 4 servos conencted to 4 AA batteries. The picaxe (on 4.5v) and servos (on 6v) work fine when i turn on the power however when i connect my proximity sensor to the circuit, the servos stop spinning and the microcontroller also stops working. When i take out the proximity sensor and turn of and on hte ciruit, everything works fine.

ALRIGHT!!!! It worked. I added a 10uF capacitor and the everything works even when the sensor is in the circuit. I checked the output of the sensor on my voltmeter and it outputs! THANKS EVERYBODY!!!
