    Disconnecting things is not a good way to determine what is wrong, it doesn't give any real clues as to what might be bad. You'll need to see if the compressor is getting power when the A/C is not cooling, if it isn't then the electrical circuit to the compressor needs to be fault traced to find the problem.
    These systems are fairly complex so I advise taking it to a professional.

    Your A/C needs recharging. An amateur can to it by themself by getting a recharging kit from a part store for like $30. If you take it to a mechanic, they'll charge you at least $100.

    But when you're A/C won't blow cold air anymore, it needs recharging.
