Paint thinner (aka Varsol) has never in my experience harmed plastic in
any way. It's the best shot you've got at removing the label and
residue without harming the finish on the plastic (assuming it's black,
ultra smooth and glossy). You might also try alcohol (rubbing,
isopropyl, denatured, etc).
Jeff, I got hundreds of those little squares that have alcohol on them. In
a packet like a one time use for giving yourself an injection. Diabetics
use them. I have used them to get a lot of sticky stuff off. They take off
the glue left over from IV tape. It takes some rubbing sometimes, but the
plastic, or whatever substrate seems unaffected, only the goo gets melted,
and that slowly. So, for me, those work, only slowly. It may take you more
than one. Or two. Or three. Or four. But that's what you want.
Something weak and easy on the substrate. If you can't find the patches,
get a bottle of isopropyl alcohol, and some cotton pads, or just use a small
scrap of cotton rag.
