Piece of tape stuck on the drum

Laerjet Pro M227
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

There is a piece of label stuck on the drum which is in a separate cartridge from the toner on the LaserJet Pro M227. Can I use Goo Gone or Lighter Fluid to remove it? If not, what else can I use. it is not fused to the drum but it is firmly stuck.

I would not recommend goo gone for that.  I have in the past just pealed off stickers or labels off drums with just my fingers.

Its time consuming then I clean it off with cloth that has a silicon coating to help wipe off any excess.  But the drum is so sensitive it can easily become damaged and then you will have a quality issue.  Safest bet is to just replace the drum

I have in the past carefully pulled off as much label as I can, then using a soft cloth dampened with alcohol, gently but firmly rub off the rest of the label and adhesive. Let it dry. When you print you'll see some print quality issues for a few pages, then it clears up pretty good after that.
