I would like to connect Kindle Fire to a monitor. What kind of cable(s) should I get? Seems like I have to use 3 different cables to make it happen. Does anyone have any suggestions? Can anyone show me the product (cables) web links where I can purchase the necessary cables? Thank you.

It can't be done. There is no output socket on the Fire.

I know there's no output. I can buy different cables to convert and connect to the monitor but so far I can think of is to use 3 different cables. I would love to have a connector that has monitor (female) and USB (female) on each end but I can't find it anywhere...

The usb port does not support hosting any external devices. It can only be used for charging or transfering data to/from a PC.

John is correct -- you can't use that micro-USB port as a video output. Not going to happen.
