How to charge my computer from my TV?

I was wondering if I could charge my computer with my TV using an HDMI cable. I have tried: I have connected an HDMI cable to my TV and computer. I think it was caused by: I lost my charger


Even though an HDMI cable does carry a 5 V signal, the signal is still taken from the phone or tablet, not to the phone or tablet. An MHL cable for connecting a device to a TV set is able to charge the connected device.
