Fingerprint sensor and servo problem

Have the Adafruit fingerprint sensor and Arduino uno and a 9 gram servo. The fingerprint sensor works great and I would like te servo to rotate 180 degrees when the fingerprint is confirmed. Have connected the servo to a separate 6volt supply and the sense wire to uno pin 9. Servo makes a little noise but does not turn. Any help would be appreciated. Here is my code:

Any Help?

A search for software serial and servo reveals many posts on the subject. Put your code in code tags (read the sticky).

Hi, From the picture you have not got the gnd of the servo power supply connected to the gnd of the UNO. The servo needs to see a signal with a gnd reference?
