Ranger 7 was mated with its launch vehicle on 6 July 1964. The countdown began early in the morning of 27 July, but was scrubbed owing to a problem with the Atlas. It lifted off at 16:50 GMT on 28 July, the Atlas performed flawlessly, and the Agena achieved a circular parking orbit at 185 km then performed the translunar injection.
