Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
I assume the label is stuck under the platen
the easiest way is to get a rag, wider than the label, dampen it with some solvent, and try to roll it in like a piece of paper. don't use too much solvent, or it will run off into the machine. be careful, it may melt the plastic.
to see if you have a good solvent, stick a label on something it won't hurt, put a little solvent on the label, wait a little bit and see if the label comes off easily.
if you're not careful, you can damage the machine.
or take the machine to a repair shop, the platen is not easy to remove

I wish I had one in front of me, but I don't. Brother used
two ways of holding the Platen (big black roller in place. Open the top cover
and look at the frame where the platen is held. You will likely see plastic
clips holding the axial that runs through the platen (85% of brother machines
have clips), or you will see that the axial runs directly through the frame. If
you see clips just squeeze the tabs and lift up. Note which side has the gear,
so that it is reinstalled the same way. If you don't have clips you will need
to loosen the Allen screws holding the knob to the platen roller, and the
roller will lift right out. If the label left any of the rollers sticky they
must be completely cleaned before reassembly, Goo-Gone is a good product to
remove gummy labels.
Best of luck, Ron
