what do you mean by "charged up"?  you have a proper set of gauges to measure the hi/lo pressure,and they both are in the right range?

 I agree, this is a Low or High ( probably high) pressure switch issue.  Getting "real" gauges on it isnt rocket science.

 you can rent them from O'Reilly if  you cant borrow them.

I had to completely rebuild my 01 ac system.

As mentioned high cut off and low cutoff are possibilities.

 

Get a set of gauges from harbor freight. Cheap and do the job.

 

Connect with quick connect to the high and low side (back left of Engine bay)

They have black caps.

Also when you do the gauges don't forget to open it.

There are many other things and I can help but need more info
